Vidor iTunes iMix

Pop Music for the Chicken Shack Radio inside your Famous Heart

dear friends, I made an iTunes list with 3 songs from our first album... if you haven't heard the first album, here's a good way to get a taste of it along with some of King Vidor's favorite songs. Linda Thompson, Rod Stewart, and Del Shannon among others, I'm sure there's something here you haven't heard that will change your life.

Methodist Bells

Dearest Rock Fans,

King Vidor has been hibernating for some time now. We have a 2nd record, long-delayed for sure. But the record is coming. We're busy at The Kitchen Table, busy building harmonies and breaking strings like bees making honey. This might take some more months, so I've got a little present for you.

Please, enjoy if you like some 10 songs I recorded in Rome over the past 10 months with contributions from many friends there and back home. The Methodist Bells record was recorded largely on acoustic instruments, direct to hand-held recorder, mixed in Garage Band and finished at the last possible moment before saying goodbye to return stateside. There is no album art or album credits, just 10 songs of mixed heritage, from short fat rockers to slow countrified acoustic strummers and odd reverbed-out spoken word oddities. All new, all original.

And by the way, if you're ever in Rome, be sure to try the potato pizza at Da Simone on via Carini. I'll be in touch again soon.
